Light and bright, you could be forgiven for thinking you have entered the pearly gates of heaven. It’s a compact day spa in the W Hotel, London. It plays host to celebrity and expert therapists like Su-Man and spray tan expert, James Harknett. AWAY Spa does offer sauna and steam room, but that’s about the extent of the “spa” facilities. You come here for the glamour and the expertise and it delivers that in massive doses.
Su-Man Skin Reborn Sculpting Facial at the AWAY Spa, W Hotel London
A favourite of stars like Juliette Binoche, Frieda Pinto and Anne Hathaway, Su-Man’s signature facial is legendary. Blending her unique expertise in dance, Shiatsu, Pilates and oriental facial massage, this is a facial like no other and her magical hands work wonders sculpting the face. Hailed as a facelift in an hour; it’s non-invasive and uses an incredible array of techniques that are totally unique. Originally from Taiwan, Su-man fuses her knowledge of the body, massage and the face for a truly original experience. Following skin analysis and a quick chat she gets to work. Not on your face, but uses a combination of acupressure, deep tissue and light shiatsu to release tension from the neck and shoulders. Then the massage moves to the head, ears and face.
Su-Man deep cleanses, steams, extracts impurities, exfoliates, tones and moisturises the face with her carefully designed massage techniques, using her own specially created skincare products. Working the face across the different muscle groups, it’s designed to relax and rebalance the structure, texture and tone of the skin, it’s an invigorating experience and totally in tune with what the client needs. Her expert touch complements her signature line (used in the facial). The products are lightweight and work perfectly with the routine. The results are obvious and instant and they come directly from her magical hands.
